Does this summer’s heat wave have you wishing for an early winter? Seek solace tonight with Peter Murphy, the cold-hearted goth-rock pioneer (and former Bauhaus frontman) playing what’s billed as his final show in support of last year’s characteristically gloomy Ninth. He headlines an evening stacked with hermetic Brooklyn indie types equally unlikely to bust out a version of “Hot in Herre,” including fuzz-pop nostalgists Crystal Stilts, chill-wave survivors Small Black, and psych-folk newcomers Air Waves, the last of whom recently mentioned on Facebook that they’ve worked up a Stevie Nicks cover. “Silver Springs” sounds awfully refreshing right about now.
